Friends at Work

Friends on the spiritual path are highly valued in Buddhism. 

In the Upaddha Sutta, when Ananda claims that friendship is half of the spiritual path, the Buddha rebukes him: “Don't say that, Ananda! Don't say that. Admirable friendship, admirable companionship, admirable camaraderie is actually the whole of the holy life.”

Who are our valued companions on the business path? How might we find common spirits in our workplace? If we envision a business sangha, what might that look (and feel) like? 

We’d like to contemplate such questions together on June 16 — exploring noble friendship in our business and economic lives. In this 75-minute session, we will meditate together, hear a short impulse talk, allow for self-reflection and exchange in break-out groups.

What is an "Impulse" event?

Online impulses from the Network for Mindful Business are a 75-minute format to meditate together, share shortly on the topic, allow for self-reflection and exchange in break-out groups. They generally take place at 17:15 - 18:30 CET (Central European Time, Paris, Berlin...), which makes a nice close of the day for Europeans and a fresh morning practice in the Americas.

The impulses are hosted alternatively by different core members of the Network for Mindful Business.


Please RSVP to to assist our planning. We can send you a calendar invitation upon request. If it’s your first time joining one of our events, please share a couple sentences about your practice and how you came upon the Network for Mindful Business.

Mindful of occasional technical hurdles and glitches, please dial in 5 minutes early. A waiting room is set up, so you can also dial in even earlier. ;-)
